Q: Is there any additional information you would like to be showcased for students at Wakefield to know?
A: The leadership over the last two years has really tried to refresh Mu Alpha Theta from just an honor society that used to tutor during Pride Time to one that provides service and promotes the interest and aid in mathematics in other ways. With the pandemic, Mu Alpha Theta has been forced to be more creative and change with the conditions with how tutoring is offered. As we have moved back to in-person, we are continually working on ideas of how to help the community as well as the members of Mu Alpha Theta.
